Another rainy morning. Up and out to slosh through the mud to get the chores done. All the animals look distressed with the cool wet weather as they don't hurry out of their dry overnight houses when I open the doors instead of their usual competition for who is the first out the door.
After breakfast and devotions I started housework. The oven repairman who was a different one from last time came about 11:45. When he walked in I said so you are the oven expert, he gave me a questioning look and said "I've never seen one of these before" gestering toward my Pro Series double oven. I told him they told me last week when they rescheduled this appointment that they were sending the "oven Specialist", he laughed !!!
After going through the entire story about what had happened with the oven and what the first repairman did 2 weeks ago he said hopefully it's just a bad part that the other man put in. If that's not it then he doesn't know anything else it could be. (I've heard that statement before )
I told him that it was fine if it couldn't be fixed but I wanted the $430.00 that I paid to have it fixed back !!!! He said I should get it if this new part didn't fix it.
After he left I resumed my housework with a new zest to work off my frustration for the day.
The Fall decorations all came out today to help brighten my mood after all the dusting and vacuuming was done.
I was surprised to find only another 1/2 inch in the gauge after the hard rains.
I went over to my friend Rita's house this afternoon to give her money for our dinner at the mini class reunion we are having in a couple weeks.
Her daughter is getting married in April so we shared some ideas on our wedding plans. She gave me a good lead to a videographer for daughter's wedding.
When I came home I found hubbie in our driveway working on this.
I think this is what is known to tree cutters as a "widow maker".
Hubbie and #1 son who came up a little later worked for over an hour trying to dislodge the tree top with no success. They were tossing a rope over the limb and trying to pull it loose.
Our area is under a flash flood watch tonight with more rain on the way.
Talked to daughter tonight ,she said they lost the volleyball games tonight to cross county rival West Henderson.
She also sent this picture of some of her business students she drove to the Biltmore house today. She is second from right. Crazy she still looks like one of her students more than the teacher !!!
I am thankful that God is in control of all things and I can rest in the knowledge that He knows best and all is in His plans for us.
Good Night and God Bless.
